Joke of the Day

Difficult Shot

Bob stood over his tee short on the 18th hole for what seemed like forever. He’d waggle, look down, look up, but never start his back swing. Finally David, his playing partner, asked, “Why on Earth are you taking so long to make this shot?”

“My wife is up there watching me from the clubhouse, and I want to make this shot a good one,” said Bob.

“Good Lord,” said David, “You haven’t got a chance of hitting her from here.”

Toys vs. husband

WOOHOO......

GR is coming home tonight. I was commenting earlier today on a marriage site about toy usage vs. PIV-IC with dh. There is no comparison, truly. Since my dh left Monday morning I have had to MB a few times. Oh sure, it gave me the physical release I needed but I will take my dh any day over a vibe. After all, we cannot have passion with a toy, can we?

Just because I have times where my O comes from the added help of a toy, still, it NEVER causes me to turn down good sex with my dh. Rather, it makes me want him more. I'm glad that he is secure in knowing that he cannot be replaced. This morning I MB'd to O with a vibe and my hiny is already tingling for my dh. For those dh's who worry about their dw's becoming too attached to toys, get over it, OK? In most marriages, I would dare to say that the dh is "the man" with passion. The toy is just a toy.

Poor, pitiful me!

Both of us were up way too late last night getting things done before GR's trip and we had to pick up dd#1 from work at 11:30pm. Needless to say-- we were SO tired this morning, tired but desperate for a last love making before he left. It must have been 4-4:30am as our eyes opened.

While still spooning from sleep and me being too tired to care about Oing, I added a little CO, lifted my top leg and quickly slipped GR's penis in me. And that's how we made love until he O'd. Afterwards, he was resting in me when I felt him slowly begin thrusting again so I also started to move in rhythm with his body. Only this time, he pushed my legs tightly together beforehand and did me in "doggies-on-their-sides" fashion... I'm sure there is a more techie name for that position... with my legs tightly together on the inside, his on the outside. It wasn't long before his second O came and then he was satisfied; so I was content.

I pulled his hands back to my face as I kissed him. We kissed and embraced as long as time would allow and then we had to get cracking. At 7am, I dropped him and dd#1 at the airport. Now I go through three days without him.... my hiny still tingling. Poor, pitiful me !!!

Need new toys and would like a 25% discount on your purchase?

I don't make money with liberator, just for the record. But I placed a toy order with them this weekend. They were having computer issues so I didn't find out until today that some of their toys are selling at prices up to 25% off and they're throwing in a free toy bag ($30. Zomi Case) with a toy purchase. I got some good deals on toys.

WARNING---
liberator.com has nude models on most of their pages but their toy page is clean.

Absense makes the love making better!

Well, we didn't have sex last night but we sure did this morning. I enjoyed a glorious O through man-stim. No really, it was truly glorious for some reason. You know how some O's just rate right up there; this one did. And then GR and I made love some more until he received a good O. When we were done, we still had time for afterglow before having to shower and leave for church. Gees, come to think of it, we got out of bed at 5am and that was AFTER an hour of sex so no wonder we had plenty time!

GR and I came downstairs, made coffee, had breakfast and then we got on the 'puter to order a few things... OK, if you must know, 5 things... from liberator.com, one of my favorite places for toy shopping.

We went to church. After Liturgy the teen group elected officers for the 2008-09 school year. Dd#2 was elected VP so she is pretty pleased about that. This will be her last year in the teen group as she'll be too old to stay in it beyond this year. Dd#1 was secretary during her last year in the group.

Hum-drum day! We came home and ate HM cannellini bean chowder- yummo. Got laundry going and rested a bit. Then GR and I dropped dd#1 to work on the way to doing our Sam's shopping. As I speak, we are winding down for the evening. We'll have to run out at 11:15 to pick up dd from work but other than that, it's rest time 'til early morning.

I will miss GR while he's away. Spending nights in an empty bed does not suit me well. Ah well, it will only be 2 nights so I think I can do that. And he and I usually have sex that is a notch more erotic than usual when he leaves and returns from business trips. What's that saying?--- "Absense makes the love making better"... or something like that.

You just never know how a session will turn out, do you?

For the last couple of days, GR was out of town on business. We were both extremely tired last night after he arrived home late so we caressed some, kissed and made plans for sex this morning before drifting off to sleep. Well, duhhh... folks, sometimes we do have to plan these things so they will happen. If it is not happening for you, do you bother planning?

It was around 6am when we sort of woke each other. Things felt a bit odd. I don't know... I think we were still tired. No, I KNOW we were tired and would have slept longer but it was almost time to go pick up dd#1 from work. PIV-IC is one of our most favorite activities so normally, I prefer to do that first and then move on to other things. This time we did things in reverse and chose to do man-stim with each other.

With my hands dripping in coconut oil, I gave GR a hj, fully intending to stop ahead so we could do PIV-IC. I wasn't going at it all that long... it must have been a good hj and he must have been terribly aroused. Before I knew it, I was enjoying the visual of him shooting all over my stomach, my hands and my arms. OK, so there will be no PIV-IC in the cards for today, lol! But I did enjoy the visual and I'm good with that.

You just never know how a session will turn out, do you? Perhaps that is what makes sex so enjoyable and unpredictable. When things in bed take a turn from the norm, how do you react to it? Do you try to fight it or do you go with the flow? Have you learned to be thankful for each and every sexual encounter with your spouse? After all, they are all good aren't they, each in their own way.

Come join the party-- a pity party!

No matter how careful we are scheduling sex, it can be challenging even when both spouses really, REALLY want to do each other. Ask me how I know!!! This past week, GR and I struggled some with the schedule. And you guys think he and I are always on top of these scheduling issues!!! I'm not superwoman, you know! ;-). A couple of hitches this week threw us off. We were able to enjoy sex but throughout the hitches, things just seemed so rushed.

Keep in mind neither of our dd's have cars or even drive yet.... for various reasons which I won't go into at this time. Dd#2 began her summer class at community college. They meet Tu/Th evenings and either GR or I pick her up afterwards around 8:45-9pm. By the time we got home to settle in on those nights we were going to bed at 10pm. "Not so bad", you say.

But wait----

Dd#1 worked an extra shift this week on her summer job which meant that on W, Th, F and Sa nights, we had to bring her to work at 10:30-10:45pm and pick her up at 7:30am when her shifts ended. Do the math, folks-- That's 4 nights out of 7... over half our week. This tends to stress us when GR and I try to sleep or make love early, then get up to do the run and then go back to bed. My body becomes confused about whether I should be awake or asleep, leaving me feeling less than rested by morning. Unfortunately, 3 nights a week of this will continue until this dd begins her fall semester at college. Then her shifts go down to twice a week while in school, which is managable for us. For now, we'll just have to suck it up.

Is it that obvious to see how much I hate running out at night when we have early mornings next day?

This weekend another hitch reared its ugly head----

Early Sun morning, GR had to accompany one of his trainee's from work to do an intense, time-consuming job. Of course, he had to rest/sleep before going but at least we were able to get in a little time for sex. The two guys left around 1am Sun morning. They worked all night, all day yesterday and he didn't arrive back home until 6pm yesterday evening.... totally wiped out. He'll tell me, "I used to be able to work all night long when necessary." I smile and remind him, "You know, when we were in our 20's, staying out late wasn't such a biggie but now...."

Then today, he had to leave at 6:30am this morning for work. No sex last night; none this morning, leaving us both bummed out but he needed his sleep. It is a sad day for us! Whine, whine, whine. Perhaps GR and I are just spoiled.

Now for the good news---

Supper is in the crockpot as I speak and it is enough for at least 2 meals. Nobody has school or work tonight. Only thing that could mess us up would be GR's phone ringing for work as he is on call. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we can enjoy a pleasant evening IN BED!

Joke of the day

A Unique Golf Ball

Two friends went out to play golf and were about to tee off, when one fellow noticed that his partner had just one golf ball.

“Don’t you have at least one other golf ball?” he asked.

The other guy replied that no, he only needed the one.

“Are you sure?” the friend persisted. “What happens if you lose that ball?”

The other guy replied, “This is a very special golf ball. I won’t lose it so I don’t need another one.”

"Well,” the friend asked, “what happens if you miss your shot and the ball goes in the lake?”

“That’s OK,” he replied, “this special golf ball floats. I’ll be able to retrieve it.”

“Well what happens if you hit it into the trees and it gets lost among the bushes and shrubs?”

The other guy replied, “That’s OK too. You see, this special golf ball has a homing beacon. I’ll be able to get it back -- no problem.”

Exasperated, the friend asks, “OK. Let’s say our game goes late, the sun goes down, and you hit your ball into a sand trap. What are you going to do then?”

“No problem,” says the other guy, “you see, this ball is florescent. I’ll be able to see it in the dark.”

Finally satisfied that he needs only the one golf ball, the friend asks, “Hey, where did you get a golf ball like that anyway?”

The other guy replies, “I found it.”

Joke of the day

A blonde goes for a job interview in an office. The interviewer starts with the basics.

“So, miss, can you tell us your age, please?”

The blonde counts carefully on her fingers for half a minute before replying…. “Ummmm… 22.”

The interviewer tries another straightforward one to break the ice. “And can you tell us your height, please?”

The young lady stands up and produces a measuring tape from her handbag. She then traps one end under her foot and extends the tape to the top of her head. She checks the measurement and announces …..”Five foot two!”

This isn’t looking good so the interviewer goes for the real basics; something the interviewee won’t have to count, measure or look up. “Just to confirm for our records, your name please?”

The blonde bobs her head from side to side for about 15 seconds, mouthing something silently to herself, before replying: ”Mandy!”

The interviewer is completely baffled at this stage, so he asks “What were you doing when I asked you your name?”

“Ohhhh, that!” replies the blonde, “I was just running through that song,…… Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you….”

Are we not all, or just some of us, called by God to be our spouse's sex partner?

It is common knowledge that lower-SD spouses struggle to "get in the mood". Setting chemical imbalances and personality aside, do you think part of it is because they place too much emphasis on their high-SD spouse to create the perfect "ta-ta" for them in the bedroom? [ie- If I'm going to do this, entertain me. It's all about *me*.] My Orthodox Christian Faith teaches that God has already placed a calling on all high and low-SD spouses to "wow" their spouse as much in bed as they do out.

How do Christian callings relate to being an enthusiastic sex partner for our spouse?

Why do you think so many married individuals miss their calling to be their spouse's sex partner? ... And I want to add, these individuals are often, but not always, dedicated Christians who will go to the nth degree for those in their church. They will come home and do things around the house for their spouse. But then they go to their marriage bed and whine or say "no" to spouse, who btw is also part of the church.

As Christians, are we allowed to pick and choose which callings we will answer and follow? Could this have anything to do with the reason why so many married folks are lukewarm about their Faith? In other words, would it bother you if spouse gave and gave of him/her self to the church but came home to give nothing in bed?

Do we not feel called of God to be our spouse's sex partner? When God places a calling on our lives for anything, shouldn't we be doing it as "unto the Lord"? I mean, shouldn't we be putting everything into it, be joyful, be enthused, not whine or complain?

What does it mean to us and to the Spirit of God when we do not experience daily joy in our calling? Could it mean that we are missing the mark [sinning]? If we are failing our calling on a regular basis, why would God view it as anything but unconfessed sin?

Do you enjoy a romp in the rough? Dealing with unnecessary bedroom rules!

On a marriage forum, I recently read and posted in a thread regarding spouses who bring up unrelated topics right in the middle of sex. Personally, my dh and I don't do that so it's a non-issue in our home. However, we occasionally find ourselves listening to or viewing the background "white noise" of the tv running next to the bed. We alternate between using tv and cd's as white noise so the kids are not always thinking, "The cd's playing. Mom and Dad must be at it."

Anyway, early this morning GR and I enjoyed a pleasant quickie while awakening. We were spooned with me in front. I woke first and got antsy so I kept wrapping my legs in and around GR's until he stirred and moved his body in tighter towards me as I pushed mine towards his. That was the extent of the foreplay and it was all "no hands" and "no words". Without changing positions, we began to make love. We stayed spooned until we O'd. Then I turned around to say "good-morning" while we enjoyed the afterglow with our nekkid bodies pressed together. Like we do many mornings, we went downstairs, made coffee and headed to the porch.

Per my request as I was not yet decent, GR filled the bird bath and watered our herb garden just outside our porch. As nature would have it, it was not long before rain drops very slowly began coming down as we sipped on our coffee so I asked GR, "Were we were supposed to have rain today?" [He is such a weather geek and always knows the answers.] "Of course," he says, "Weren't you listening to the weather report this morning?" "No, I wasn't-----," and then I laughed at him. "Oh, I get it. You were watching the weather while we were having sex!" He laughed and stumbled for a quick comeback but he wasn't quite fast enough.

I started to mimic a pretend scenario of him making love while catching the weather report. We are usually more vocal in bed, "Oh honey, you feel so good. I love to make love to you while we first wake. You are-------" As his voice trails off he stretches his neck to see the tv and thinks, "WAIT!!! What did she say about today's chance for rain?" The teasing was all in good humor; we were both laughing.

Later this morning I thought about this. Is it a good or a bad thing when you can still enjoy sex while one spouse is peeking at the tv or does it break the "romance" for you? Would that take away from the closeness you feel while in the midst of love making? It didn't bother me at all this morning. Many times we'll put the news on downstairs and talk between news pieces. Is there a huge difference between doing that in the living room or in the bedroom?

I understand if one spouse is truly breaking the mood for the other in the bedroom but do married couples have to have strict rules of do's and don'ts for both spouses to thoroughly enjoy sex? Do some spouses complain needlessly and use it as an excuse to say "no" or "no the settings not perfect"? Do too many "must have rules" like soft music, perfect lighting/candles, perfect clothing, no tv, etc., take away from having fun in a natural way as in, "Let's just do each other"?

Romance and perfect settings are fine for an occasional treat but are you and your spouse usually able to enjoy a romp in the rough... even if the tv's on?

What keeps you coming here?

I love all my readers; I really do. Lately I've been wondering- Why do you come here and post? Or why do you come here and lurk?

You lurkers are the majority here, don't you know that? I would love to see all my lurkers post comments once in a while. What would entice you to do so?

What do you all like to see when you visit marriage or sex blogs? Or more specifically, what is it about these topics that you most passionately enjoy or WOULD enjoy discussing with others? What makes it impossible for you to keep silent at a blog, where you just have to post a comment... or you will bust ;-)? What makes you regularly visit the same blogs? So tell me- What keeps you coming here?

Please feel free to answer all or some of these questions any way you would like.

What next? Am I narrow-minded?

How far away from home do you need to go in order to enjoy sex? Does it always need to involve a huge thrill factor? After this sort of session , what would you need to try next in order to maintain that level of sexual satisfaction? Where does it end? I don't get it. Do you?

A strange shower or... a lesson in patience!

Oh, dear! GR is on call this week and it shows. He's been on the phone in the next room dealing with one call after the next. This all began around 1 1/2 hours ago when he was on his way to take a shower. The shower is still waiting for him.

As for me, I am so tired. I am getting ready to head off to the bedroom where I will rest. and read. and wait. and keep the bed warm. and look forward for my love to join me. soon, I hope. so I can wrap my body around his. so I can feel my insides twitch. again.

"Am I too old?"

What does it mean when a late 50-something year old man whom I love dearly, asks me this morning, "Do you think I have enough energy for you? Do you feel I am too old?"

Last night we had sex; he initiated. Then we did each other again this morning; I initiated. We don't always have sex every night and every morning this way. It is just that when the mood hits one or both of us, we do make love. GR and I discuss this occasionally and we both understand that our high-SD's are pretty evenly matched. There is no way that I could complain as he keeps me well satisfied in the sexual area... and in other areas too.

I take his fears seriously but I playfully laughed and told him, "Of course you are not too old. What would make you think that? A few of our sessions are such that we seem to take turns lacking energy (ie- from lack of sleep) but that goes both ways, don't you think? So how does that make you a person with low sexual energy or a person who is too old? If you are, so am I."

This is about the second or third time since Dec 2006 that he has asked me this. GR is six years older than I but by no means do I ever feel he is too old for me. In general, he can run circles around me with his energy level. Physically and emotionally I am very attracted to him and he knows it because I tell him and show him in many ways, all the time. His main love language is physical touch with words of affirmation down lower on the list in second place. As far as I'm concerned, he is a hottie.

I cannot crawl into the minds of how men feel about that but perhaps some of my male readers can relate and help me understand. Or even some of my female readers who are more "in the know" than I can shed some light on this.

As he left to pick up dd#1 from work I told him, "Honey, we are just getting started with our marriage as we know it today. Don't ever feel you are too old for me." I know we will likely pick up this discussion again where we left off this morning.

The most helpful & budget-friendly pills for healthy prostate?

Have any of you dh's taken these supplements for good, prostate health: Urinozinc Prostate Formula which we purchased from Walgreens or Saw Palmetto by Member's Mark (Sam's brand)? Wives, feel free to reply with what your dh's take.

GR, who is in his late 50's, was taking the Urinozinc PF but just recently he switched to the Saw Palmetto. We can't tell any difference in how it affects him but the Saw Palmetto is vastly more economical to use. Do any of you guys take one of these products or another similar one? And we don't need to be spending money on anything if none of these products really do any good, kwim?

I hate feeling like we're always playing "doctor" in deciding which over-the-counter pills we should be taking for better health. In August, I'll be seeing our doctor so I'll be putting the question to him at that time.

Opinions? Suggestions?

A hot good-bye session that we almost missed

These last few days we've been entertaining out of town relatives... one in particular being an older, cantankerous person. Use your imagination and picture the visit. Can we say "stress"??? But now our guests are gone. Yesterday afternoon I told GR- "It's time for a date, don't you think?" He agreed so we went out to one of our favorite Italian restaurants last night and enjoyed a quiet dinner and a nice bottle of Italian wine, just the two of us. It was wonderfully quiet :-)! Before heading home, we stopped at a nearby lake to walk and take in the view.

Our girls were still up when we arrived back home so we visited with them a bit before turning in. But by the time we broke away from them and hit the bed we were both wiped out. I thought, "Oh man, GR's leaving town early in the morning for a 2-day business trip and here we are too tired to enjoy sex." However, I try not to worry about these things as they often have a way of fixing themselves. Sure enough......

Around 2am I felt the presence of GR's body whooshing over me like an explosive rush. Immediately, he pulled me towards him and I realized in my half-awake state, that I was being ravished. Initially, I was still sleepy so I thought we'd do a quickie and then go back to sleep. But no! Forget the quickie. How does someone acquire energy for this at 2am is beyond me but we did!!! The last thing I remember was glancing at the clock; it was 3:30am. GR slid in behind me to spoon as we drifted off to sleep. This is how we slept until 4:45 and then woke so he could get ready to leave town. It won't be until at least tomorrow night before we can explore our bodies all over again. I can wait but it won't be easy as I have been continuously reminiscing about our night. What a passionate way to part for a business trip.

A few films GR and I enjoy watching in bed- Please help me find more like them?


Often, it's hard to relate to contemporary romance films because much of their acting in the romance department stinks; they usually lack genuine passion. But we do like contemporary romance films as long as they are done right.

GR and I do not care for romance films that include major, almost slapstick comedy. They are just dumb to us. And when we choose a film to watch, the main characters do not always have to be our age as long as the film is really good. A few examples of those that we do enjoy are the following:

*Walk the Line- Joaquin Phoenix, Reese Witherspoon
*The Notebook (one of our absolute favorites)- Ryan Gosling, Rachel McAdams, James Garner, Gena Rowlands
*Something's Gotta Give- Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton
*As Good As It Gets- Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt, Greg Kinnear

Some of our film preferences are because of the story line, some are because of the actors/actresses and some are both. Can anyone please help me find similar types of films that we can purchase to watch at home? And p--l--e--a--s--e, do not suggest anything starring Diane Lane or Julia Roberts. They are two people whose acting I cannot stomach. I've actually purchased DVD's of films they starred in, watched them and then threw the DVD's away.

Suggestions?

Thanks,
Gemma
